The house was built in late 1890s. I am in desparate need for help for house repairs, especially the kitchen, bathroom, roof, plumbing, electrical, and the front porch and front steps. The house also has mold that I am trying to get rid of, because the smell is literally making me sick. But I’m trying to fight it. I wear a mask while I am at home to help with my breathing. I am disable and unable to get the repairs done because of financial troubles. I pray that someone can give me some help on repairs so that my standard of living and quaity of life can go up somewhat. Thank you.

My husband and I bought our first home about five years ago and desperately need a kitchen makeover. We are in our early 50’s and just recently adopted three of our grandchildren. Our kitchen right now is 10 by 12, very small and we love to cook. We have five children of our own whom are all on their own and we have a total of sixteen grandchildren. Every holiday and football game days are at our house. Eight of the grandchildren love to help Grandma cook, but I have to trun them done because of space. If I allow one or two to help the other are really mad.

Please “HELP”, we are in need of a bigger kitchen

My house was build in the 70′ I would love to have a new kitchrn and bath.

Mar 22, 2011 11:58

We are new parents to a 13 month old. We moved into this house last July. We have turned the house around with small projects one at a time. My husband has a bad back, so we have to get everything done from somewhere. And I work full time, with a little bit of commute. So we don’t get any time to do anything around the house. We would love to have a little upgraded kitchen. The kitchen is the center of our house. We want to make it more modern and more spacious. Not a whole lot of storage but room for improvement. Between my son and my demanding job, i don’t even get time to take a nice long shower. Would really appreciate some help into remodeling our kitchen the way we want to. Thanks.

I’m sure you have several people in need of help of remoldeling their kitchen, and I’m one of them. My cupboards are falling off the ceiling, although I did fix one side, the other side needs the same thing done and I’m not able to do this at this time, also the shelves inside are falling down. The drawers are falling out the bottom, and not built very well, as well as the appliances are not working well. So you can see that with a kitchen like this, I would love to have a makeover. Hoping I’m on your list. Warmly, Pauline

My name is Jose a retired vet living in the Fort Campbell area. I was just med retires from the army after 7 years of active duity and two deployments. Me and my wife bought our first house 1 year ago, a fixer upper in Clarksville Tn. After getting med retired from the army for injurys while deployed to Iraq, we feel like our home will never feel like a real home. I know its hard times for everyone out there. We have a two small children and two dogs and a big house that is so out dated, it was built in 1992 and is in bad shape. I have done alittle updating but not much due to money. Me and my wife love DIY we watch it all the time. If there is any programs that you know of that can give us a home make over that would be a dream. I know my home could look so good, it has a lot of poetical. Thank you for making great shows and keep up the hard work, I look forward to watching more.

Hi to all those who are writing to DIY. I don’t believe you are on the correct site to connect with them. This is a link from sweepstakeslovers.com to DIY’s entry site. The $100,000 sweepstakes is over. The bath and kitchen remodel is over. DIY is constantly running great sweepstakes but go to DIY’s site and look for them their. They are full of other helpful info to get projects finished. Between DIY and HGTV you will find a complete library on home improvements, remodeling, finishing up projects that went haywire as well as easy ways to do things (compared to say Home Depot or Lowes).

So, please don’t waste your time on the wrong site. Look up above at the URL string and see who’s web page you are on. Oh, also DIY and HGTV have people that will answer questions about how to get something done if it isn’t already listed in their extensive on-line “library”. Use their search engine inside their sites to locate the information you need or want. It will direct you to the correct area and give you choices. I am 54 and disabled but I still continue to rely on both sites heavily so as not to get ripped off as well as get ideas that I can do.

Don’t go to a sweepstakes site to contact the actual companies running or offering the sweepstakes unless they are sweepstakes questions. They aren’t familiar with DIY or HGTV. They are a great place to find out about sweepstakes that are offered by these types of companies and many, many others.

Hope this helps!

No way can we afford anything new and revised without a financial boost. my son and daughterinlaw live with us as they lost their home and also a daughter that sufers with fibromyalgia and can’t work lives with us. Needless we have a house full and not much help. It would be really nice to win this sweepstake. God bless. O Hingle

Hi my name is Jeanette, I have been down on my luck for years, my mother had passed away from cancer which is my best friend, her boyfriend of 20 + yrs passed away 6 months to the date, my husbands father passed away unexpectly, then grandparents and now my brother who was 44 yrs old this year passed away of Pulminary Fibrosis. We have had so much heartache and pain and my husband is out of work and we raise his son together with no help from his mother. I work two jobs just to make ends meet and our kitchen and bath are falling apart and now on top of that we are having electrical problems. I go home crying night after night praying for a blessing , please be our blessing…..

My husband is a retired army captain. He was in and bombing in Iraq and suffered a traumatic brain injury and other injuries as well. He deals with PTSD as most of our service men and women do. He received a purple heart. He also had a parachute accident which injured him and he just had two major back surgeries this year. He is limited in what he can do, He has been denied social security disability for the 2nd time now. Our house was built back in the 1980’s. My husband bought it in 2009 and couldn’t fix it up because he was going to physical therapy, dealing with his PTSD, and going through a bad divorce. Our kitchen is dark because it only has one window. I scraped 3 layers of wallpaper off of part of the walls. Underneath the wallpaper, the wall is sponge painted with 4 different colors, The cabinets are old and ugly. The countertops come right off. I’m not sure how many layers of linoleum is on the kitchen floor and it’s broken in places. The fridge is wedged between the countertop and a wall. The floor underneath that may be rotted because our icemaker leaks. The appliances need replacing. The dishwasher doesn’t work. The bathroom is just as bad. The commode works half the time. The cabinets are old. The drawers are hard to pull out. There is also linoleum on the floor. There are many people who need a new kitchen/bathroom and will be grateful to win this contest. God Bless what you guys do for people.

We are in desperate need of a makeover. This is our first home and we have lived in it for over 15 years. When we bought it, there were renters in it with a large family for over 20 years and did not take care of it. We bought it as a fixer upper and with the economy, haven’t been able to do the things we would love to do. We are in need of updating. Our bathroom stucco is chipping away each time I try to take a bath. We have chunks in our walls missing. The window leaks each time it rains and has warped the wood. Our kitchen needs help as well.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Oct 29, 2012 1:59

My husband and I were married four years ago, and we both have homes on the same street, three houses down from one another. I inherited my home from my daddy, my daddy knew my husband for over 35 years, that is how we met, smile. My daddy has since passed away and this would be in his memory if we won. Both homes were built in mid to late 30’s and are very, very outdated. This would be a dream come true as I love, love, love to be the kitchen cooking, baking, dehydrating, canning, making Kombucha, etc. The kitchen is where I spend most of my time creating wonderful things, the other half would be spent in the bathroom, LOL, Well, some of it anyways.

Thank you for this opportunity.

The bath rooms they all have horrible wall paper with big flowers on it, ugly counter tops and wall mirror (dated) a whirl pool tub that has never been used too big and gross, the shower fixture are broken also. Can’t renovate because I have to get to work in another city and all of our money go on gas. I am also taking care of my grandson on top of all of these problems.Love my new home but can’t afford to renovate. HELP US MAKE OUR HOME BEAUTIFUL INSIDE LIKE THE OUT SIDE.

Please help or my wife will make us move! We have a small galley kitchen with two different color counter tops, we’ve slowly been buying all new appliances and started to work on the attached breezeway to expand the kitchen. The truth is I would love to move the wall between the kitchen and bath and move the kitchen into the kids bathroom and make the breezeway the new bathroom/ mudroom, but it is way above my pay grade. I bought all the exterior doors, siding, and stone to match the house, I reshingled, I’m out of time and money and winters closing in.

Oh my gosh, If I could remodel my kitchen and bathrooms I would be the happiest person on the planet Earth. I am a teacher and coach for middle school kids and have five kids of my own. You can only imagine how busy I am. With my teacher salary I do not have the income to hire a professional, so I am left to do it on my own. I have done the easy stuff, popcorn ceiling, crown molding baseboards and new paint. I cant imagine tackling the HUGE job of the kitchen and bathrooms. They are so dated and awefullllllll. House was built in 1976. I still have the original white tile in the kitchen and green marble counter tops in the bathrooms. Please Help

Nov 24, 2012 9:24

My husband and I love to cook!! The kitchen is where our family comes together!! We love entertaining for the holidays and having all the family at our house! That being said we have a very small kitchen and dining room. We have a growing family that is growing out of it!! We live in a house that my grandfather built and will probably live there for the rest of our life!! So we have no choice but to update and expand! The problem of course is financial. My husband was laid of from Goodyear four years ago and had to go back to school. He has graduated and is now a nurse but now all our extra money is going to pay off student loans. So a kitchen remodel is completely out of reach. After reading some other entries on here I felt like there was no way I would even try because so many others are more deserving. But it is something that we dream about everyday so I thought i would give it a shot! Good luck to all!!

DIY… I would love to have my kitchen and bath given a makeover!!! I would rather be able to pay for it myself, but it’s not possible. I have a galley kitchen. Very, very long, but not wide enough. When I entertain for my family, there’s not enough room for them to make trips in and out of the kitchen without bumping into each other…they are a great family, too! I lost my job back in June after 23.5 years due to our American Steel Company going out of business. I am 56 and currently unemployed since June of this year. It’s not easy finding another job — not at this age. When I watch DIY on TV, I dream, dream, dream, and fantasize, that maybe that that could happen for me someday. Normally I like to give and not receive… so it’s not easy entering into this contest. But, I would like to see one of my dreams come true.

With Love…Carol

I just wanted to enter but then there were a lot of things I would like & I was only allowed 2 items.

Nov 25, 2012 13:12

We have lived in the country, in a one room cabin for the last 6 years with a small, unfinished kitchen that was once an exterior porch and no bathroom.
That is right, we have a camping port-a-pot in a corner of the cabin. All bathing is done at the kitchen sink and that is how it is.
I would love to have a real bathroom and see my kitchen finished, dust boards and trimwork where needed to properly weatherize our cabin. For the last four years, the ceiling is made of exterior moisture wrap in order to keep the insulation in the rafters and keep fiberglass out of our food preperation.
This is a location that we planned to retire to years down the line. But due to difficulties that came up, we had to close the doors to our business, retire early and move to the cabin. It would be nice to see it done. Right now, it is like a glorified camping trip and there is no opportunity to say “Lets go home, … oh, yea, we are home.” It is a difficult way to live and we both have limitations due to disabilities which slows the development of these areas.
Yup, … ya gotta see it to believe it.
If we are selected for this sweepstakes, our lives will be greatly changed. Not only would I make sure of a completed kitchen and bathroom, we could have a well put in so we wouldn’t have to haul water any longer.

My husband and I live in the country. We started a one room cabin years ago and slowly worked on it until we could retire down the line. That day came sooner than we thought it would when we had to close the doors of our business and take an early retirement.
We utilized a portion of our porch to build a kitchen, and after 6 years, is not completed. Such items would include: the ceiiling is covered with exterior moisture wrap to keep the insulation from falling into our food preperations and to keep it in place. Trimwork to weatherize and finish off the floors and ceilings. (I am always fighting dirt that blows in through the cracks.) Increase cabinets and countertops for storage and work space.
And I still have no bathroom. We are still using a camping port-a-pot in the corner of the cabin. All bathing is done at the kitchen sink. I can honestly say, I have not had a shower in 6 years. (Sad, …isn’t it?)
Both of us have a physical limitations due to disabilities which slows the progress in these areas.
At best, our lives here is like a glorified camping trip. And when it is just too much to handle, you cannot say, “Lets go home now. Oh, yea. We are home.” It is a tough way to live at times and physically demanding.
We do not have a well and haul our water every two weeks. And we live up to an hour from any town for shopping for supplies.
I don’t need fancy, .. I just need something to function the way it should.
With our limited income, this is all it is going to be. PLEASE, … we need your help to make life livable.
Ya gotta see this to believe it.

We watch DIY every day because we are going to remodel our bathroom and kitchen. We watch to get ideas as to what materials are available to enhance our projects. The problem we have with your program is that you are always knocking down walls to make the rooms bigger. We have a galley kitchen with no walls to knock down and a bathroom that is backed up by the kitchen and bedroom. What can be done?

Your thoughts would greatly be appreciated.

My husband and I bought a house about 8 years ago. From the get go, we have been taken advantage of. House is falling part and built poorly. Water leak after a year and no access to tub that was leaking. This ended up with a hole in my son’s wall, floors messed and a dent in my pocket book. We have both been hard workers our whole life but just can’t seem to catch a break. I would love to tear this home down and build my dream home. Anyone want to take the job?

My husband and I have both been on disability for a couple of years, now..It is very difficult to renovate a 1911 small galley kitchen and and unfinished dining room wood floor which would probably look great with a redo. My husband has RA, COPD, AND A HAS HAD BACK SURGERY, along with multiple reactions to the meds he has to take. I have several problems, as well including a bad back and neck. My husband tore a great deal of the wall down in the kitchen and started to renovate but then he “blew” his back and incurred RA on top of it. He has done so much over the years but now he can’t. Our kitchen floor looks typical to the several layers of old tile showing..ugh…My brother-in-law built us some cupboards and also one for the sink area, which is separate. It is still sitting in the basement for around 7 years. He died 4 years ago of Leukemia. We don’t have family that can do the “bulk” work and we can’t sooo..we pray and wait. My kids feel bad as they live hours away and can’t visit enough to help as they work long hours and also, my son goes to college. It’s very frustrating to look at this stuff especially when we have the boards to put up in the kitchen that we purchased years ago but we can’t afford the “back” board, trim and paint: and also the flooring. the oven fan died years ago and is ugly:)..ah well…we are not the kind of people to beg as we believe good things will come when it’s meant to. My husband saw this and wanted me to write about our situation…Thank u so much listening and God bless all u do for others. :)
Patti and John McEwen

p.s. we have a sidewalk that needs replacing as our water line broke and we couldn’t get the cement replaced. Our porches had old rusted railings that were literally “blowing in the wind” lol, but he took them out and put a board ont he siding on the other side for support. The cement porches have been painted many times and the one we use the most is literally breaking apart. We used salt on the porch and didn’t know that that would ruin the cement! Live and learn…there’s more but that’s enough for now…thanks so much. :)

Love watching shows like DIY and Love it or List it. And any remodeling of homes. They just never seems to have them in my area. Love to have bahroom done. Cause house is 53 yrs old and still original bathroom and tile. And then plaster walls on top and tile all around. Love to get the shower of my dream and make bathroom look more like a spa not a nightmare.
